Straight Up with Sherri

Information You Need to Know:

Thanks to Blogs for Terri for the following links!

The Web of Lies


Consider this timeline:

May 1997 - Deborah Bushnell send a leter to Judge Shames (he was before Judge Greer) saying that the Schindlers should be involved in Terri's care during her final days (since Michael intends to move Terri to hospice and remove her feeding tube).

Aug. 1997 - Felos sends a letter to the Schindler's notifying them of pending action to remove Terri's feeding tube.

May 1998 - George Felos is hired and files a petition in Court to remove Terri's feeding tube.

April 6, 1999 - House Bill 2131 was introduced in the legislature by the Florida Elder Affairs & Long-Term Care Committee to amend Section 765 (Civil Rights) of the Florida Statutes. two weeks later, the legislature Committee on Judiciary recommmended that House Bill 2131 should also change the Section 765.101 legal definition of life prolonging procedures to add: "INCLUDING ARTIFICIALLY PROVIDED SUSTENENCE AND HYDRATION, WHICH SUSTAINS, RESTORES, OR SUPPLANTS A SPONTANEOUS VITAL FUNCTION".

Oct 1, 1999 - Senate Bill 2228 (formerly HB2131) becomes law changing Section 765.101 of the Florida Statutes to include the above.

Jan 24, 2000 - Trial begins to decided whether to remove Terri's feeding tube.

Feb 11, 2000 - Judge Greer orders that Terri's feeding tube can be removed.

If you followed the timeline, Felos filed a petition to remove Terri's feeding tube BEFORE the law was changed, and the trial began AFTER the law was changed (and Greer approved removal of the tube). Why is that?




THERE IS MUCH MUCH MORE!


READ IT ALL!





And then there is this:








Please check both of these out.........

  • Why don't you try reading the information compiled by an attorney in the State of Florida?

    You keep posting this inflammatory content with the hopes of what .. inciting something? What? What are you going to change? Nothing.

    Stop looking for ulterior motives .. where there aren't any!

  • Good post Sherri! Amazing that Felos filed to remove her tube before the law went into effect.

  • Sherri,

    I know this is probably too late but perhaps if someone has been slipping her food and water when no one was looking there may be time to try another way to communicate with Terri.

    At the Wadsworth Centre, the laboratory arm of the New York State health department, John Wolpaw and his team recently proved that a hat not unlike a swimming cap peppered with electrodes could pick up clear enough signals to allow the wearer to move a cursor around a computer screen. "There was an unsupported assumption that to get that kind of control, you needed to implant, but our work showed that's not the case. These systems can do better than a lot of people give them credit for," says Wolpaw.

    "We look at rhythms on the EEG that are normally just idling, but we've shown that by using mental imagery, people can learn to make the signals stronger or weaker and we can translate that into cursor movement," says Wolpaw.

    Also there are some MRI techniques that show responses to being spoken to.

    And there are some very new thermal imaging techniques being studied that EASILY detect changes to blood flow beneath the skin around the eyes when being spoken to, changes that the researchers say demands consciousness and therefore could prove consciousness.

    Forget the medical diagnostics purposes. HERE'S A LEGAL POINT: If Terri can be wired, monitored, so she can communicate herself then she can answer the question herself: does she want to live? Should not she be allowed to testify? A hearing impaired person is allowed to wear amplification equipment in a courtroom. Shouldn't Terri be allowed to testify as to her wishes herself?

    You must be brain-dead. Of course there are ulterior motives! They are driving ideologues on all sides of this situation (including you and me). If you had none, you wouldn't even have been here or posted. QED
    Furthermore, Sherri's "inflammatory content" is merely an exposé of truth, sprinkled with opinions. As opposed to the court rulings, which are purely "opinion". Not that any court decision is other than that; this is the purpose of courts, to render opinions.
    Do you want other variations of truth or opinion? Go find a different blog.

  • Sherri,

    Forget the medical diagnostics purposes for an MRI. HERE'S A LEGAL POINT: (and read the article referenced below and the other advanced techniques noted):

    If Terri can be wired or monitored so she can communicate herself (see info below) then she can answer the question herself: does she want to live? LIVE, IN AN OPEN COURTROOM! HERSELF! Should not she be allowed to testify? A hearing impaired person is allowed to wear amplification equipment in a courtroom. A blind person is provided alternative means. Shouldn't Terri be accomodated with whatever technological means possible to be able to testify as to her wishes herself?

    And there are some very new thermal imaging techniques being studied that EASILY detect changes to blood flow beneath the skin around the eyes when being shown pictures of familiar and unfamiliar objects and places, changes that the researchers say demands consciousness and therefore could prove consciousness.

  • I have been trying to learn more about this case for the past few weeks. Does anyone know where i can find the facts of the case from the begining? The news sites mostly just cover recent stuff I am looking for past also.
    Thanks

  • Anonymous .. if you READ even the comments in this post, you would find a totally neutral, unbiased account of the FACTS in this matter ... definitely not laced with the incessent propaganda that comes off of this website. There is nothing factual that's ever posted here ... merely inflammatory opinion.

    I believe that you may do well to read the Abstract Appeal link, but keep in mind that only a few facts are presented there.
    It is not a fact that Terri had a heart attack - this is a highly contested speculation, unsupported by any evidence whatsoever. The Second District opinion is ridiculous, but then activist court opinions usually are.
    There was a lot that happened between Jan. 93 and May '98 that is not included on their timeline. Many other sites will fill in this gap.

    The bottom line is that the Abstract Appeal journal is put together with the underlying assumption that attorneys and courts are gods and not subject to misconduct or criticism. If you believe that, then all is fine just as it has happened. I don't believe that, so I need other sources of information and opinions.
